Vikings dominate first Wesco meet / Cross country

Competing in the first Wesco race of the season, the Oak Harbor girls cross country team finished third and the boys fourth in a four-team meet at Lake Stevens Wednesday, Sept. 13.

The host Vikings dominated the meet.

The Lake Stevens boys posted a perfect score of 15 by claiming the top five spots. Arlington (56), Marysville-Pilchuck (91) and Oak Harbor (93) followed.

The Viking girls finished with 19 points as Oak Harbor’s Alex Smith took second and spoiled the Lake Stevens’ girls chance to match their boys’ perfect mark. Arlington tallied 56 and Oak Harbor 69. M-P did not have enough runners to earn a team score.

Not only did the Lake Stevens boys grab the top five spots, they had 10 of the first 11, interrupted by Oak Harbor’s Tyler Grehan (16:46.84), who finished seventh.

Ki Thomas won the 2.95-mile race in 16:26.87.

Abigail Hill won the girls race in 18:43.62, topping Smith by nearly 50 seconds. Smith (19:32.05) finished 28 seconds ahead of the third-place runner.

Oak Harbor will compete in the 41-team Carl Westling Invitational at South Whidbey High School at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16.
